After several nights in various temperatures and climates of sleeping under the stars in this bag, I’m ready to blast out my take on it. The Alpinizmo Latitude 0°F bag is a comfy sleeper. This mummy bag is designed light and compresses well enough for backpacking. I slept comfortably almost every night in this bag, in or out of my tent.
One exceptionally cold night in Bryce Canyon National Park I needed to add a liner to the bag. In all fareness though, the temperature dropped well below the bag’s rating. In hind sight it was a good experience, it gave me the opportunity to see how constricting the bag would be with an additional liner added to it. To my surprise it wasn’t constricting at all. I tend to roll around a lot at night and sleep on my stomach at times. None of this played a factor though, I was able to move freely in the bag without constraint. This followed true with the footbox as well. Which tends to be a source for twisty bags after hiking all day on restless legs. The feet have plenty of room to move and and your legs can turn freely as well.
A couple other features I really appreciate in the construction of this bag is the sewn in draft tube/chest collar and the barrel locking hood with draw string. There is so much heat transfer lost through your head. Even if you don’t like covering your dome while sleeping it’s a good feature to have included in a bag just in case you do need it. It’s much better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. The barrel lock hood fits snug and comfortable around your head. Even with a drawstring lined inside of the hood it remains plush comfortable while lying on it. The draft tube held up nicely too. Never once do I recall cooler temps sneaking into my bag from an exposed head and neck, nor do I recall heat escaping either.
With a #5 two way YKK Zipper, an antisnag zipperband, along with the capability of zipping two bags together, it’s safe to say that there was a lot of attention put into the functionality of the zipper on this bag. Maybe too much? I didn’t have the opportunity to fully run all of these features through the ringer. There was no second bag available for me to combo this one to, nor was there a pretty enough lady on hand to snuggle with. As for the antisnag zipperband I was very impressed. The zipper tracked smooth and I never caught the bag. Zipping this bag up quick and easy was never a problem. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for unzipping it. The zipper seemed to be a bit stubborn on the down track. Once you got it going it was fine, but getting it started could be a bit frustrating. It’s a humbling experience to get your butt kicked in the middle of the night by a zipper with you bladder screaming at you the whole while.
If you are interested in this bag, it’s a great purchase for an overall bag. I’ve searched online and found varying prices ranging from $73.99-$155. If you are interested I suggest searching on the web. Picking up this bag under $100 is a steal!
Overall, I really like this sleeping bag. For being a light weight durable 0°F bag, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck. The Latitude 0° is a safe choice for an all around bag suitable for various weather conditions and seasons.
